I tried it and it works for me, so I suspect that
org-export-in-background is just not implemented in the stable release
(based on the maint branch of the git repo - the elpa releases come from
that branch), but *is* implemented in master (which is what I use).

If that is correct, your options are to wait until version 9.0 is
released, or to use the master branch of the git repo, with the
possible bugs/instabilities that that might entail.
